./ notes.txt / a new curriculum

november 2019 | 2 min read

is our educational curriculum the best it could be?

after completing school, I realized how many inaccuracies were taught in our science & history classes, and how many important skills we missed

for example, why don't we spend more time learning about learning?

plus other omissions:

below are some general ideas for a different school curriculum, focused on bootstrapping students for better success in learning & life:


human school — curriculum v0.1

Learning skills

Individual skills

Social skills

Our World


this list isn't organized around the traditional areas of study: math, science, social studies, english, art, etc.

instead, it focuses about learning about how to improve ourselves, our ability to communicate, and our understanding of the world. the traditional areas of study will be in service to these goals, and would be given greater meaning
